A trailer loaded with £45,000 worth of Kellogg's breakfast bars has been stolen from a lorry park in south-west Scotland.

The cereal offenders made off with an articulated trailer in red Curries livery from the Lockerbie lorry park at Johnstonebridge, Dumfries and Galloway.

Police said the trailer was loaded with more than nine tonnes of the bars, estimated to be worth around #45,000.

The theft appears to have taken place at about 2.30am on Thursday.

Detective Constable Martin Lumsden, from Police Scotland CID, said "We are currently carrying out investigations into what is a high-value theft which has obviously involved an element of planning.

"We are reviewing CCTV footage and want to hear from anyone who may have been in or around the area of the lorry park around the time of this theft, or indeed the hours and days prior to the theft as those responsible may have been in area carrying out some form of reconnaissance and planning.

"Information can be passed to us through the 101 number.''
